Irish Repertory Theatre will present the Tír Na Theatre Company's production of the solo show Jimmy Titanic, written by Bernard McMullan and directed by Carmel O'Reilly, at Irish Rep Theatre's W. Scott McLucas Studio Stage January 24-February 18, 2018, with opening night set for January 30.

Colin Hamell will star, playing more than 20 roles in what is described as "a wholly original Titanic story set between the great ship and heaven....Originally conceived to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the great ship's sinking," according to a press release, Jimmy Titanic stars Hamell "as a Belfast shipyard worker named Jimmy Boylan, as well as more than 20 other characters whose lives were connected to the doomed ocean liner. From his new home in a humorously rendered heaven, Boylan remembers and relives events surrounding the voyage every day, consumed by its legacy."

The creative team for Jimmy Titanic will be announced at a later date.
